Michael was a long time cyclist who always dreamed of racing triathlon. After his first daughter was born and feeling he didn’t have time for long rides, he registered for his first race. In 2010, he began his triathlon career racing the MSC Toronto Island Triathlon. With the goal of surviving, he managed to finish with a smile and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. While his triathlon race schedule has become busier, he makes sure the Toronto Island race is on his calendar each year.
Michael is an active member of the Toronto Triathlon Club, Morning Glory Cycling Club and Zwift community. He works in the financial industry supporting digital transformation. When he isn’t training, he loves to spend time with his wife and being a dad to his two daughters.
Being an endurance athlete comes with success, failure, injury and mishaps. Michael has experienced them all (often many times over).
